Jonathan Willcock to head up Skanska’s UK infrastructure business


Jonathan Willcock, who has led Alstom’s systems, signalling and infrastructure business for the last seven years, is to move to Skanska UK in October to head up its infrastructure business.

Skanska is currently working on the River Humber gas pipeline replacement project for National Grid, which is set to be the world’s longest gas pipeline in a tunnel that has been inserted in a single string. The company was also part of the joint venture that completed the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon Improvement Scheme in May this year, eight months ahead of programme.

Gregor Craig, Skanska UK.

Gregor Craig, Skanska UK president and CEO, said: “Jonathan has a proven track record of leading successful businesses. His senior leadership experience in the construction industry will add greatly to Skanska’s infrastructure expertise.

“We look forward to welcoming him and working on some exciting upcoming opportunities.”

In addition to his seven years with Alstom, Jonathan has also held senior roles at Go-Ahead Group, the FTSE 250 bus and train operating company, and Vinci, where he helped to develop its nuclear power station construction business. He started his career as a management graduate with London Underground in June 1999.

Jonathan commented: “One of the things that really attracted to me to Skanska is its values and its commitment to responsible business.

“I’m excited about joining the company and realising the huge potential in the infrastructure market.”
